Termidor is not labeled for use on turf. It is only labeled for use around your homes foundation for termites, ants, and other selected pests. It is important to read and follow the Termidor SC product label? which states that you can only treat one foot up from and one foot out from where the ground meets the structure. The animals need to be out of the area while the product is being applied and they should not come back into the area until it is dry. Since Termidor is a non-repellent product you would not want to apply anything repellant as it will null that affect. For flea and tick control outside you can use the Outdoor Flea Kit.
Sometimes the ground is slow to soak up the Termidor SC you place in the holes. You may need to fill the holes, then go work on something else for an hour, come back and fill them again, go work on something else.....3 to 4 times to get the proper amount down the holes.
You should perform a liquid termite treatment in the ground to get the termites where they are entering your house. To perform a treatment just as a professional company would do, please read our How To Do A Termite Treatment Article which explains exactly how you should treat your home properly. Doing a treatment like what is described in the article will not only take care of existing termites that you have, but it will also protect and prevent future termites from entering for about 7 years.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
As we apologize for the inconvenience the Termidor SC is available in a 20 ounce container that can create up to 24 gallons of mixed solution. Please let us if you need anything else.
For Suberreanean Termite Control, the best method to treat is by digging a trench around the exterior foundation wall. Exterior termite treatments using Termidor SC or Taurus SC will provide a 10 year barrier protection against termites. If there is visible termite damage in the walls or floors in the same area as the sonotube, we recommend directly treating that area with Termidor Foam or if you have access from the interior, directly drill through the concrete floor and slab and treat the dirt area beneath. Please refer to page 7 on the product label in the section Concrete Slab Over Soil for specific directions.
You can view the How to Treat for Termites Page for step by step instructions on how to perform a trench treatment.
To treat a concrete slab, you will come 2-3 inches off the wall and drill holes 10-12 inches apart using an 18in-24in drill bit. Using a 5 gallon bucket, mix 4 gallons of mixed solution (.8 fl oz of Termidor SC per gallon of water) and pour the 4 gallons of mixed solution in the drilled holes for 10 linear feet. Usually each hole will take approx 1/2 gallon of solution. It is easier to use a funnel to pour the solution into the holes. If there is a crawl space at any point, dig a 6x6 inch deep trench around any post or cinder blocks in the crawlspace and pour the Termidor SC mixture into that soil.
Termidor SC if sprayed around structure perimeters for ants and other insects can be reapplied every 6 months. If applied in a trench for Termites, it will bind with the soil and last up to 10 years.
Yes, Termidor 80 WG can be used as a foam. However, Termidor 80 WG is a restricted use product. It can only be purchased by a licensed pest control operator. You will use a Poly Foamer sprayer and ProFoam Foaming Concentrate. We would recommend using Termidor SC. Termidor SC should not be used indoors unless there is an active infestation and you know exactly where it is. You would treat the area directly.
Boracare can be used when treating the remainder of structural wood in a 5:1 solution. Concentrate application in areas susceptible to attack, to include all sills, plates, floor joists, piers, girders and subfloors. Treat all exterior wood including siding, facias, soffits, eaves, roofing, porches, decks and railing. If Boracare is the sole preventative treatment for subterranean termites, a 1:1 solution must be used.
Termidor SC binds with soil and can stay in the soil up to 10 years. We highly recommend to contact the manufacturer BASF 800-526-1072 since it was applied in an off-label manner.
